Downloading music without paying for it is considered a crime, and there have been cases of individual users being punished for illegally downloading music files to their computers or for sharing those files 6 days ago. You must create an account to download any song, and a free account is limited to 5 song downloads per day. In addition, there are many computer programs that can convert and play the music on CDs, or even download it to your computer so that you don't need the CD to play it. There are places where you can legally download music and other types of audio that don't involve the extraction of streaming content.
As we mentioned, you can continue to stream music through videos on YouTube without downloading it, and you'll avoid breaking the law. Paid subscriptions allow you to listen ad-free, save songs that you can't download for offline listening, unlock a larger music library and better sound quality, and even allow you to mix some tracks in certain applications.
